Dietary supplements for constipation
Constipation occurs when your bowel movements happen less often than normal or your stool is unusually hard. A normal bowel pattern varies for everyone. It differs from 3x a day to sometimes only 3x a week. Making little or hard stool is only a problem if you are actually experiencing difficulties with this, but usually it is harmless. Constipation can usually be treated quickly if you start treatment early enough. Do not hesitate to talk about your problem, so that your doctor or pharmacist can advise a suitable medicine or dietary supplement. Note: some laxatives may only be used to a limited extent. If used incorrectly, they can cause blockage!
In addition to taking a medicine or dietary supplement, you can also pay attention to a number of other things:
- Drink plenty of water.
- Change to a healthy diet with a sufficient amount of fibers, found in vegetables, fruit or whole grain products.
- Exercise regularly.
- Never stop bowel movements.
Along with constipation, other ailments such as haemorrhoids or other anal complaints can occur. In our pharmacy you can find products to help treat these complaints efficiently. If your symptoms of constipation persist for a longer period of time (over 2 weeks), you should contact your doctor.
